I like my legropes significantly longer than most. Scared of spring-back. Was surprised to hear Iggy ordered a 6' one, then remembered he has longish arms and thought perhaps they'd make up for it. Interesting to think of all the different surfers of different shapes and sizes using very similarly shaped and sized equipment.

4 surfers need 7 hangers-on ? They couldn't even organise a shoe sponsor

Who is gonna whinge about the QLD and NSW surf forecasts on swellnet now that Steve is doing them?

Can Steve still pull off the, “gonna be shit at Lennox, gurgle swell, no banks, bad winds etc” in the forecast and then pump it up a few days after the fact?

Never seen so many dolphins as today. The pod must have had 30+ in it. People were all stopped between Tama and Bronte watching. Probably end up on social media. Quite a few babies. Six or seven catching waves at once. Pretty great.

Local dolphins probably bummed at all the blow ins. Brazilian dolphins are the worst.
See any dolphin drop in stoushes beans?

Plenty of party waves. Seemed to be teaching the youngsters to surf.

Mexican Comp looking good. Slater still looks better on waves like that than the majority of contestants.

He's surfing good but definitely looks a bit puffed at the end of each ride.
